I made this birthday card for a very good friend, Darena who also happens to be one of my downline and lives in Georgia. That is one of my favorite things about becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I have met so many people I would never have met and have made the most wonderful friendships. Darena used to live in my area but when she was here we never actually met. Her husband is in the military so they moved around a lot but we finally got to meet in Florida when her family was stationed there and I went there on vacation. It was so nice to actually meet after a few years of emailing back and forth.
This card is about as simple as you can get. I used the stamp set called Beautiful Friendship. I thought it was fitting for my friendship with Darena. I first stamped the flowers in So Saffron ink and then added a little Calypso Coral to the middle using a Stampin’ Write Marker. Then I stamped the leaves in Old Olive a couple of times without re-inking. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays.
I hope you had an awesome birthday, Darena.
